Pairing integration

'Pairing integration' is the process that allows any supplier to integrate their system with any principal clinical system through an interface mechanism.

Interface mechanisms enable separate systems to:

  • read patient information
  • extract information in bulk
  • and enter data into the other system

You can find more information on each of the IM1 interfaces on the GPSoC Interface Mechanism Fact Sheet

The four principal clinical system suppliers on the GPSoC framework are TPP SystmOne, EMIS Web, InPS Vision and Microtest Evolution.

Each must provide an 'interface mechanism' for use by 3rd party systems to support integration between the principal system and specialist applications, such as for document management or appointments.

Interface mechanisms enable separate systems to: 

  • read patient information
  • extract information in bulk
  • and enter data into the other system

The interface mechanisms which Principal Clinical system suppliers provide under GPSoC must comply with the Authority Requirements..

Any supplier can apply to 'pair' their service with any principal clinical system.

 

Process

To access the GPSoC Pairing Integration Process, suppliers must first complete a PIQ entry form. Suppliers must complete the GPSoC assurance process for each pairing.

Stages of the pairing integration qualification and assurance process.  A full text explanation follows below this image.
The five stages of pairing integration and documentation related to each stage.

Text explanation of the diagram

The architecural diagram contains a left to right flow through the pairing integration qualification and assurance process.

Pairing integration qualification (PIQ)

The first three stages are part of pairing integration qualification.  They run sequentially, indicating that all the documents in a stage must be complete before moving to the next stage.

1. PIQ Entry

Containing the following document boxes

  • PIQ Entry form
  • Non disclosure agreement (NDA)
  • Unsupported test environment (UTE) booking form
  • Pairing integration pack (PIP) - this document is highlighted in the diagram

2. PIQ initiation

Containing the following document boxes

  • Release scope definition (RSD)
  • Requirements Traceability matrix (RTM)
  • Common Assurance Process (CAP) approach - this document is highlighted in the diagram

3. PIQ Design Build and Test (DBT)

Containing the following document boxes

  • CAP Design Build and Test (DBT) Deliverables
  • Test evidence

Pairing assurance integration

Upon completion of stage 3, the diagram moves in the pairing assurance integration phase, containing two stages, again indicating that all documents must be complete before moving to the next stage.

4. Pairing integration development and test 

Containing the following document boxes

  • Tailored Pairing Integration Pack (TPIP)
  • Test evidence
  • Permission to proceed to deployment/FOT

5. Deployment First of Type (FOT)

Containing the following document boxes

  • Deployment verification criteria (DVC)
  • Request for Change (RfC) (Lot 1 only)
